We are again joined by politics professor Jason Brownlee.
This is a continuation of our discussion with Jason from
last episode (142), where he introduced Peter Singer’s work on effective
altruism and discussed some of the positive aspects: https://progressivepodcastaustralia.com/2016/08/21/142/
On this episode Jason discusses some critiques of Singer’s
effective altruism, focusing mainly on a failure to address the structural
causes of poverty, such as capitalism and neoliberal institutions like the
International Monetary Fund.
